This is very good, I know you said this was a practice piece, but are you going to add color, or is it finished as is?

Good point Ronni. Excepting self portraits I can count the men I've painted on one hand. Only four come to mind right now. Maybe I just don't get passionate about painting men. Maybe I should think about it more.

Thanks JR. I've just noticed the inner corners of her eyes are wrong. I can fix that though. I not sure about colour. I'm working on something a bit different right now where colour may be vey important.

Great form on this one, Mickey. It's a difficult angle, but you've captured a rather playful expression. Again, you have me very curious as to what you're up to, as I'm pretty sure the distortions on the viewer's right side are intentional. Are you using ivory black?

tali, I'm likely to faithfully copy any camea distortions, something I ought to watch. Anyhow I hopefully corrected the eye and put a few smashs of paint to show the wisps of fur over her right cheek. This is Lamp Black which is probably rather too blue.

Great contrast between the eyes and the face.

Thanks Thomas. I still need to make a tiny correction to those yes though.
